2.1 Non-Exclusivity of Agreement. The Parties agree that the rights and authorizations
granted in this Agreement are non-exclusive. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as limiting
Library's rights to enter into agreements with third parties to Digitize works from Library's collection in
anyway, including ways identical to those provided in this Agreement.
2.2 Identifying and Collecting Content to be Digitized. The Parties shall in good faith identify
Available Content that Google may elect to Digitize; provided that Library agrees to commit no less than

Digitizing the Selected Content.
2.3 Collecting the Selected Content. Library shall be responsible for locating, pulling and
moving the Selected Content to and from the designated location on the Library premises where Google
can collect it as weil as re-shelving the Selected Content when the Digitization is complete. Upon

in a particular Project Plan, this collection function may instead be assigned to Googie.
2.4 Transporting and Storing the Selected Content. Google may remove some or all of the
Selected Content from Library premises to perform Digitization in facilities controlled by Google and located

across a border, Library will provide Google (i) a list of all Selected Content expected to be considered in
the project as soon as possible after the Effective Date to be used for obtaining any appropriate government
approvals (such as the local Ministry of Culture) and the Parties agree to discuss approaches for obtaining
any such government approvals and (ii) an itemized customs manifest of each shipment of Selected
Content prior to each and every shipment, if Google is considering shipping Selected Content across any

collaborate and define the most appropriate way for Library to provide to Google complete catalog
records.
3. COSTS
3.1 Costs paid by Library. In addition to costs mutually agreed upon by the Parties, Library
shall be responsible for the following costs: (a) those related to locating, pulling and moving the Selected
